I have been on a bamboo kick, as of late.  I LOVE bamboo knit/jersey. It is so buttery soft, it washes beautifully... and I am told it is environmentally sustainable.  Can't knock that!

Recently I made myself a purple bamboo dress & I have been loving it.  With the left over purple, I decided to make my mom a tshirt hoody.  I bought some pink bamboo to make her some sort of top and have not been inspired until now.  After making my dress and seeing I had a teensy bit left over, I was ready. Pink AND purple!? But of course!
(And... I must admit, I do have another project queued up, but when inspiration struck for me on this one, I justified moving onto this because I did not feel like re-threading my machine... and hey! The purple was already in there! ha  Wink)


My mom's style is kind of sporty and youthful, so I figured a hoody would be her sort of thing.  A cozy hood was in order!


It has 3/4 sleeves, which should prove practical for spring...
(Crazy face picture!)


And it has a little double heart pocket, about the right size for a debit card and cell phone!
(Hopefully she likes it!)

Anyway, I can't stress enough how wonderful bamboo is.  You should make something bamboo for your mom too!

Happy sewing  Wink

It is lovely, I am sure se will love it. Cheesy

I wish I could by bamboo fabric here. We got a lot of sheets made of bamboo from the US, I have to admit I sacrificed one of them for some smaller projects.

Have a nice Easter!
